Will this lot work together?

Im looking at having a good go at the paint on the Spider, as although the car looks nice, its missing that wow of a looked after car paint wise! First up is Angelwax Revelation (Fallout remover) > Dodo Juice Clay bar and lube > G3 Scratch Remover for the odd scuff > Autoglym SRP > Dodo Juice Lime Prime Lite > Zymol Concours.

Now, Zymol say you should use HD Cleanse prior to their wax/glaze, which I have. Do I have to use this? I have had great results with DJ LPL as a glaze before wax before?

What do people do when polishing/waxing soft tops? I'm planning on black plastic bagging/taping the roof to save getting the various products (mostly the fallout remover) anywhere near it - is this just a waste of time?

Lime Prime and SRP are essentially the same type of product so no need to use both. Not used any Zymol wax but if the recommendation is to use a pre-wax cleaner first then maybe the wax likes to bond to clean paint for best results. However, I am sure you could add it to the SRP or Lime Prime without many problems, my guess is you would loose some durability which may or may not be important to you

Not used that particular fallout remover but it shouldn't stain anything just don't let it dry, apply to a clean dry car in the shade works a lot better if you apply to a wet car it just dilutes it and don't spill any it stinkkkkksss!

Got to work on this tonight, quick wash, decided to use the fallout remover, there was a fair bit of bleed, so was worth it. Then on to the clay bar and a quick wash and dry. Really pleased with the results so far, looks and feels like glass and still got the HD Cleanse and wax to go yet. Really happy. The first pic is of the fallout remover working although I'm not sure you'll see it. The second should be of the roof being bagged to protect the soft top from any adverse effect from the fallout remover (just in case), the neighbour came out and said whats wrong with it now after seeing it bagged! And the last two are of the finish so far.

So, Got the Spider finished, on top of yesterdays work, went round with scratch remover on a few bits, certainly worked well and looks a lot more scratch free now (although not perfect), then went on to the HD Cleanse, this I found not so easy to work with, maybe cause it was so warm, not sure, seemed to take an age! Then Zymol Concours wax, by hand. This is the first time I've done a car by hand (literally using wax on my palms/fingers, no applicator involved) and it went pretty well. I did get some funny looks from passers by! Unfortunately when I got round to taking pics it was late, so the pics with my iphone aren't great. The results I think probably are the best I've had, but Ive not seen it in proper daylight yet. The Concours was left on for about 30 minutes to cure, it wasn't that easy to remove, so had cured but it still came off ok.
